  • Quoted: Race + Waco, Texas’ Real Life FX Drama

    Kendra James
    19 May 2015 | 12:04 pm
    One of the most distinct characteristics of white privilege is the privilege to be unique. When white people commit violent acts, they are treated as aberrations, slips described with adjectives that show they are unusual and in no way representative of the broader racial group to which they belong. In fact, in much of the coverage of the Waco shootings, the race of the gang members isn’t even mentioned, although pictures of the aftermath show groups of white bikers being held by police. By comparison, the day after Freddie Gray died in the custody of police officers in Baltimore, not…

    Compiled by Arturo R. García I would sit on the corners, and people would walk up to me and ask me to play a gospel song, and they’d pat me on the head and say, that’s nice, son – but they didn’t tip at all. But people who ask me to play the blues would always tip me. I’d make $40-50. Even as off in the head as I am, I could see it made better sense to be a blues singer. – The Telegraph, 2009 I used to play a place in Twist, Arkansas — it’s still there, Twist, Arkansas — and they used to have a little nightclub there that we played quite often.

  • The Hollow Promise of “Inclusivity”: Saida Grundy and Boston University

    Tope Fadiran
    14 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    By Tope Fadiran It’s hard out there for white men on college campuses. At least, that’s what American media would have us believe, given its coverage of the current controversy swirling around Dr. Saida Grundy, a Black scholar recently hired (effective July 1, 2015) by Boston University as an assistant professor of Sociology and African American Studies. In reality, the way in which Dr. Grundy has been unceremoniously shoved into the spotlight proves the exact opposite: Black women on our campuses, even those who have reached the highest levels of educational achievement, are political…

    By Tope Fadiran Our colleagues at Race Forward, the racial justice organization that publishes Colorlines, was one of the organizations that pushed back against Starbucks’ hastily conceived “Race Together” initiative in March 2015. At the time, Executive Director Rinku Sen penned an open letter calling for a national conversation on race that centers systemic rather than individual forms of racism. Race Forward is now building on this statement with “What is Systemic Racism?,” a new 8-part video series. The videos star, and were written by, Jay…

  • Goldsmiths University: Racially-Segregated Spaces

    falsepolitik
    24 May 2015 | 5:46 pm
     Last month, Goldsmiths University Student’s Union held a student event against inequality where all men and white people were barred from coming. It was organised by the Welfare and Diversities officer of the SU, who wrote on the event page, “If you’ve been invited and you’re a man and/ or white PLEASE DON’T COME.”  Charming. The event claimed to be “challenging the white-centric culture of occupations”, “diversifying our curriculum” and putting “liberation at the heart of the movement.” This is by no means the first time that Goldsmiths’ tendency towards…

  • AVA DUVERNAY For Black Panther!?

    Ultimate Entertainment
    24 May 2015 | 5:20 pm
    Ava DuVernay might’ve been robbed of an Oscar for her brilliant work with Selma, but we don’t feel too bad for her- she’s about to direct Black Panther. While it isn’t official yet, DuVernay is in the first stages of negotiations with Marvel to direct the blockbuster. She’s a great choice to be behind the camera as she’s arguably the best ‘race’ director out there. She handled the theme brilliantly in Selma and she can do a lot with it in Black Panther. Taken from the original comics, the movie tells the story of T’Challa, the Prince of…
  • Conservative Netizens Mock Suggestion of Sale Of First Lady Into Sex Slavery

    Roger Wilco | Wacko On A Stick
    24 May 2015 | 5:01 pm
    From @RawStory. ISIS: ‘Michelle Obama is worth $40 as a sex slave,’ and Twitter conservatives react exactly as expected. They would claim to be patriotic. Yet they spit racist, sexist hatred at our Nation’s First Lady. They do not merely disrespect the position and the person. This isn’t about ISIS, or sex slaves. Nor is it about political disagreement. At this level of hatred, politics is no longer a reason underlying anger. Politics is the conduit for deep seated racism. What they are doing is expressing the centuries old belief that certain groups have no value as persons.

  • Still Not Doing the Right Thing: Black — Asian American Relations

    Nadia Kim
    25 May 2015 | 11:14 am
    TweetSpike Lee himself might be surprised — saddened, perhaps — that the Black American-Asian American dilemma of ‘90s-era Brooklyn he portrayed in “Do the Right Thing” could be a scene playing out in Baltimore over a quarter of a century later. Recall that in the movie, after mostly black and brown Brooklynites burn down an Italian-American-owned pizzeria in response to the cops killing Radio Raheem, rioters approach a Korean green grocery and its owner, Sonny. He swings a broom to hold the crowd back, shouting in broken parlance, “I no White! I Black! You. Me.

  • Fresh Off the Boat: The Asian American Race Conversation We Never Had

    Nadia Kim
    19 May 2015 | 10:38 am
    Tweet Phew, it got renewed. Thank goodness Fresh Off the Boat, only the second Asian American sitcom in US television history, will live on. Why am I so relieved? I’m not Taiwanese American like the main character Eddie (I’m ethnically Korean), nor did I move from a gritty Chinatown to a well-heeled suburb. But I didn’t have that much in common with Mr. Miyagi or Kumiko either, the Japanese-descent coach and paramour of Karate Kid Daniel LaRusso – but, boy, did I identify with both. The simple reason is that, despite some familiar stereotyping, I’d barely seen Asian folks, let alone…
  • Study: Racial pride can help protect young Black and Latino men

    Megha Ramaswamy
    19 May 2015 | 6:41 am
    TweetIn the wake of the death of Trayvon Martin in 2012, President Obama launched an initiative called My Brother’s Keeper to send the message the lives of young men of color matter. One of the key ways to help Black and Latino young men thrive is through racial pride. This may sound counterintuitive in a world in which a majority of young people in a recent poll said they thought their generation was “post-racial.” Our research with young men leaving jail and returning home suggests just the opposite, that embracing racial and ethnic pride can really matter in ways that can help these…
  • Dominican mob violence against Haitians

    Tweet Haitian communities have fallen victim of racist mob attacks in different localities of the Dominican Republic the last few years. Just this last April, in a small town named La Ortega, located in the Spaillat province a mob attacked households inhabited by Haitians, forcibly evicted household members, and destroyed and burned their personal belongings. The assault resulted in the violent expulsion of more than 300 Haitians from the area. In another incident, this past February, the police found the body of a young man named Claude Jean Henry hanging from a tree in a public Park in…
